  • Records over here seldom costs a dollar or less but I was once giving a mintish copy of Monica Zetterlunds "waltz for Debby" from a guy who works in a recordshop.

    That was cool.

  • Roy Merriwether "Nubian Lady"
    Rusty Bryant "Fire Eater"
    Ivan "Boogaloo" Jones "Sweetback"

    for free...spent my dollar on a soda.

  • The most valuable record I found for a dollar was the first pressing of the first Rush LP.




    My favorite dollar record:

    How is this?

    The flip is where it's at with "i wanna get into you", a nice cut that darge comped, but it was too tempting to just flip this for $$$ when i found that[/b] out

    You sold it at the right time too, cause not too long ago the artist started selling his own stock of it for cheap. I think he's all out of the 45 now, but I doubt it will ever reach the $500 mark again.

    top right it the illest corner cut. PS for the longest time I thought this was some Cherman shit due to it always being on a wantlist with Ege Bamyasi.

    Wow, he really takes the "naked" part seriously. Never seen that record before. Real nice music. Lo-fi homegrown cosmic jazz/funk weirdness that would fit in with the waxidermist folks too.


    Too many good 5/10 kr. (? a dollar) finds over the years to mention, but Stark Reality would be one of them.

    Not a Soulstrut kind of record, but I got this for 99 cents in a store in Albuquerque NM years ago. First release on Revelation Records, a big deal to the hardcore kids:

    Hey,

    By far, it is:



    I paid $7 for it back in 1989 to a record seller at Raleigh, North Carolina's Dorton Arena.

    Peace,

    Like most folks on here, too many to count. But this one ranks up there pretty high! Bought at a Garage Sale for a buck and had no idea what it was at the time. It was actually a really early score for me when I knew practically nothing about records. I remember finding some funky shit on it, breaks, etc. It reminded me of a funkier, lower budget Steely Dan and I liked it but was just digging for a different sound at that time in my life (pun intended). Sampled it, filed it and forgot about it. Several years, 3 moves and many records later it was buried deep in a crate and I had completely forgotten about it. Started digging back through my own collection one rainy day, pulled this out and listened again - mind blown. I thought to myself, I wonder if this goes for some money? ha ha. 


    Favorite cut:

    Sure this topic has come up before on the Strut, but a personal favourite was Jef Gilson & Hal Singer Soul Of Africa for free from a charity shop after I sorted the wheat from the chaff for them.
